Reject papers' plan for regulation, says Gerry McCann

The Privy Council is expected to announce its decision later this week
 
The newspaper industry's plans for press regulation are "a gentlemen's club agreement" and should be rejected by politicians, Gerry McCann has urged.
The father of missing girl Madeleine McCann said the recommendations of the Leveson inquiry into press ethics were the "minimum acceptable".
The Privy Council is due to announce its decision on a royal charter.
It is also considering a government-led plan, which has been supported by campaigners against press intrusion.
Lord Justice Leveson's inquiry was set up in July 2011 after it emerged journalists working for the now-defunct News of the World had hacked the mobile phone of murdered Surrey schoolgirl Milly Dowler.
Politicians and the press have been at odds over the details of a royal charter - a formal document used to establish and lay out the terms of a body such as universities or the BBC - to underpin the regulator.
The government's proposals published on 18 March have cross-party backing and the support of the Hacked Off campaign.
Mr McCann and his family were subject to intense press attention after Madeleine went missing while they were on holiday in Portugal in May 2007.
“Start Quote
It's not independent enough of the press and we should have no confidence that we would get any improvement over what is currently in place”
End Quote Gerry McCann
Speaking to BBC Radio 4's The World At One, he said: "I have been disappointed at the speed of progress - almost a year on from Leveson, seven months on from the approval by all parties of the royal charter.
"But I think this is a key week, really, for our politicians and hopefully they will reject the press charter which has been proposed, because from my point of view, as a victim and representing others, it will be inadequate."
He supported the government proposals as he had been "assured that essentially it delivers Leveson by another means".
On the rival press plans, Mr McCann said "it's not independent enough of the press and we should have no confidence that we would get any improvement over what is currently in place".
Mr McCann said the press "does a lot of good" but there needed to be protections in place for ordinary people.
He said: "Certainly, from the point of view of going through Leveson and testifying, certainly the key thing for us was to have Leveson implemented. For me, it was the minimum acceptable recommendations."
There are a series of key differences between the industry's plan for press regulation and that agreed by politicians and campaigners.
The newspapers' proposals would:

  • Remove a ban on peers and former editors serving on the newly created "recognition panel", which will decide in future whether newspapers are being regulated properly


  • Remove Parliament's power to block or approve future changes to regulation. Instead the regulator, trade bodies and the recognition panel would have to agree to changes


  • Make it more difficult to bring group complaints


  • Give the regulator the power to "require", rather than "direct", the nature, extent and placement of corrections, and abandon the idea of giving it the power to force newspapers to publish apologies


Fraser Nelson, editor of the Spectator, told the BBC his magazine would not take part in a system of regulation "mandated by politicians".
He told the BBC it "would in effect end the principle of free press that we've had in this country for three centuries or more".
"What happened to the McCanns was terrible, a lot of what has been revealed in the phone hacking scandal has been deplorable as well... Current laws are sufficient to deal with this."
On Thursday - the day after the Privy Council is due to make its announcement - Lord Justice Leveson will appear before the Commons Media Select Committee.

He said press intrusion played a big part in damaging the hunt for Madeleine...so why is he saying it was Amaral's bewk?

And why doesn't he tell Clarence to stfu as it's him who gives the press the stories.

Haaaa, that is fine!   Amaral can use it on the hearing. Gerry's Engish is sounding very unclear.

In a couple of years there's an opening for somebody to follow Daniel Craigs footsteps

GM, an avowed non-modern man might well fit the slot

Oh dear, Juliet Bremner will be off the Christmas card list.

 Lead item on ITV evening news. We saw PdL, Gerry speaking and then JB talking about the phone analysis with the newsreader.

 "Targeting which phones were near that apartment when she was taken or whatever happened to her "

GM's having a hell of a busy time what with a libel trial in Portugal, a forthcoming Crimewatch programme in Cardiff and TV interviews in London to gag the UK Press. It's all go in McCannland.

He said "Ordinary peoples lives are being damaged every day of the week by press intrusion, by lies being printed or exaggeration."

It "personally troubles him and his wife" that "stories are published with no regard to Madeleine's safety, to the investigation itself or whether they will be putting Madeleine or others in danger or alerting those responsible".

He highlighted the need for an independent body that could act quickly saying: "We have absolutely no confidence that the press barons can regulate themselves."

http://news.sky.com/story/1151246/madeleine-mccann-inquiry-making-progress

No video! It was quite a long interview, first talking about press regulations, Leveson ect, Sky for some unknown reason have ignored all that, wonder why?
"Ordinary people" do not have their own PR representative. Press intrusion?  Just remember this, UK Press, from the day the McCanns were arguidoed:

Bit of a side issue - but does anybody know why Gerry was at the GMC - what is their role/function
No matter how pleasurable the thought, I somehow doubt Gezza was there to have his knuckles rapped by the GMC.

I suspect one of K&G's multiple lawyers practises out of NW1 or thereabouts, or Gezza was in London for other purposes, and Tinty Head his PR team thought it would bolster his image to be filmed/photographed outside the GMC building as a timely reminder that 'brave Gerry' is a 'doctor', a member of that most respected of professions which once included a certain Harold Shipman.

Has Gerry chosen today to do a one-man Hacked Off campaign re press freedom in anticipation of Amaral's witnesses taking the stand for the first time tomorrow?

Will Gerry be jetting into Lisbon tomorrow to attend the libel trial he and his wife brought about?

It's becoming almost the ending of an old Batman episode (we older folk remember those).

Indeed. I wonder what has happened to the Gerry McCann who kicked off the whole 'Find Maddie' campaign and used to give talks on harnessing the power of the media?  How things change big grin

I agree. His blink rate is different, almost un-natural he is either very tired or under a lot of stress.
Maybe Gezza's read somewhere that infrequent blinking can be a sign that a lie is being told, or maybe he's been popping Ritalin?

Of course it could simply be that Gezza's got an eye infection. in which case this condition should be fully healed before his appearance on a live broadcast of the K&G show next Monday evening.

His hair looked like a chunk of coconut matting atop his head. How typical of his vanity if he has a weave or a toupee. I remember back in 2007 it was suggested that he and KM had those invisible wire straighteners on their teeth in the famous family portrait. Getting ready to look good for their public?
